Living Proof Healthy + Strong Trial Set Review

As my Sephora makeup interests grows so does my curiosity for hair products. I’m an Aveda trained hair stylist so I know Aveda products, I’ve heard many people use Living Proof hair products and I wanted to try some without buying the big bottles. I saw this little set online at Sephora and decided to order it when I did a big order.

s2074482-main-lhero

This kit cost $24 ($34 value) and it comes with Perfect Hair Day Shampoo and Conidtioner, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment and Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo.

Perfect Hair Day Shampoo

For the shampoo I had mixed emotions about it, some days I loved it and other days I felt like it didn’t clean my hair (that clean feeling you get in the shower) but once I got out and styled my hair it was clean. With this I felt like you needed a lot of shampoo in order to get a good lather even after trying to add water and it made my hair extremely tangly. Over all, it’s an okay shampoo for everyday use. You can get this at Sephora, 60 mL is $16, 236 mL is $36 and 710 mL is $77 (online only).

Perfect Hair Day Conditioner

With the conditioner a little goes a long way especially with my short hair and it not having to go onto my roots. If I did accidently got it on my roots, it made them greasy where as others I would rinse it out and it would be fine. This conditioner is super moisurizing and it helps with the shampoo making my hair tangly. You can get this at Sephora, 60 mL is $16, 236 mL is $36 and 710 mL is $77 (online only).

5-in-1 Styling Treatment

This product claims to be a heat protector, uv protector, helps smooth and condition, provides volume, strength and it polishes. It comes in a little package, it’s a thick cream which you don’t need a lot at all. I didn’t like this product so much,  I found it was heavy for my hair but when it came to straightening it was amazing. However, usually after a couple of days I curl my hair, with this product I couldn’t, it kept it too straight. This is $37 for 118 mL.

Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

I absolutely love this dry shampoo. Your hair looks cleaner after using it, a little goes a long way and it smells amazing whereas others smell awful. For 53 mL it’s $19 and for 118 mL is $32.

Over all, I think Living Proof is a great brand but I don’t know if the Perfect Hair Day line is for my hair (besides the dry shampoo). They do have other lines that I can try so we won’t jump to conclusions about it just yet.

Let me know in the comments if you used any of these products or any other line by Living Proof!

Organix Hair: Coconut Water Shampoo + Conditioner Review

I work in a pool which means always being in chlorine water and having dry hair. I normally use other cheap shampoos and conditioners but I decided I wanted to try something new. I saw this and I said why the hell not?

I just tried it in the shower and was actually hoping it would be a really good product because I love the smell and the look of the bottle. When I started to wash my hair it was just normal, but as I started to massage it into my scalp my head started to feel amazing! It was really refreshing, so refreshing to the point where I wanted to keep washing my hair.

I rinsed it out and put the conditioner in, when I rinsed the conditioner out it didn’t really get the tangles out but to be fair I don’t always brush my hair. For me most conditioners don’t get the knots out unless I put a lot in my hair because of me not brushing. My hair is a little dry on the ends but it’s not crunchy like other shampoos and conditioners leave it, it still leaves my hair my naturally wavy so I don’t have to curl/straighten my hair.

I am actually really impressed so far with this product, but I must say it is on the expensive side. I got mine at Target Canada for $8.99 and I looked at Shoppers Drug Mart and it was on sale for $7.99 I believe it was. Still expensive but to be honest so far it was worth the money. I only orginally bought this to leave at my boyfriend’s house but now I’m thinking of actually buying some for my own house for everyday use.

Thanks for reading, I hope this was somewhat helpful to some of you.
